We walk this park and downtown every early morning, we walk from down town to uptown and all around the park. The walks go buy so fast when there is so much beauty to look at. I highly recommend visiting this park!😍

Great for any age group as they have a nice playground, a small splash park for children which is awesome for our Florida summers. They also have some workout equipment for the adults

Sims Park - tennis anyone? (1 Reply)
It looks like Sims Park in Gulf Shores has 12 tennis courts - at least according to Google Earth. Is anyone familiar with that park? Is it a public park with free access to the courts? Thanks for your help.

Don't play myself, but you can call the George Meyer Tennis Center at 251-968-1431.
